Saved from the scrap heap

New Zealand Classic Car - - Reader's Writes -

In re­gards to Ger­ard’s story on sports cars, I bought the dam­aged Stan­ton Corvette from John Mone­han, and re­built it. Only ran it once in a his­toric meet­ing at Wi­gram — think [it was the] 1975 Au­toparts-spon­sored hand­i­cap race — Ray Archibald, Jaguar C-type won, from mem­ory. I guess if I hadn’t bought it and put it back to­gether it could have ended on a scrap heap. Sold it to Rus­sell Greer. Thought you might be in­ter­ested.

The Stan­ton Corvette is def­i­nitely well worth pre­serv­ing, Rod — it’s a good thing you had the fore­sight to re­built it when you did. AFW
